A Fari of the Art: Inaugural ‘Creative Directions’ Art Fair
A FAIR OF THE ART
Over forty local
and national artists will be showcasing their talents at the
inaugural ‘Creative Directions’ Art Fair at the Mairangi
Arts Centre from Friday 15 to Sunday 17 November 2013. This
Art Fair is a major event for the Arts Centre and offers
North Shore residents the opportunity to invest in artwork
from some of Auckland’s most promising up-and-coming
artists. Works on sale will include paintings, photography,
ceramics, glass, sculpture and jewellery as well as a huge
cash and carry section.
The ‘Creative Directions Art Fair’ kicks off with a Gala Preview night on Friday 15 November at 7pm. Tickets to the Gala event are limited with the ticket price of $35 including a live auction, drinks, canapés, live gypsy jazz music, meet the artists and first dibs on the art for sale. Tickets are available now at the Arts Centre counter or phone 09 4782237.
The Fair is then open to the public from 9.30am to 4pm on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 November with entry by gold coin donation.
This is a wonderful opportunity to invest in some special pieces for yourself and also to shop for one-off Christmas gifts. The Art Fair also supports a good cause as 30% commission on each sale goes to the Mairangi Arts Centre Charitable Trust and the Mairangi Bay Surf Life Saving Club. Your purchase will help fund the programmes of these two community organisations.
The Mairangi Arts Centre has become known over the years not only for the high calibre of the art it produces, but also for the standard and diversity of its art classes for both adults and children. Throughout the weekend of the Art Fair tutors will be giving free demonstrations in various art media and the centre offers preferential enrolment for our 2014 classes. Each year classes fill up fast so this is a great chance to secure your place and start to explore your creative side. The timetable of our free demonstrations will be available on our website at www.mairangiarts.co.nz closer to the time.
Creative Directions Art Fair is on at Mairangi Arts Centre, 20 Hastings Road, Mairangi Bay.
Friday 15 – Sunday 17 November 2013.
Thanks to Bayleys Mairangi Bay and the Lion Foundation for their help in promoting this event.
